What would you like to share about yourself?

Grew up on a farm in Indiana where we worked on a lot of machinery. Grandpa had a Model T Ford in the barn that I played on as a kid. Love for old cars lasted into my retirement years where we purchased a model t collection in 2006 and restored and sold seven cars all over the world. I am a licensed Financial Advisor and help people preserve and grow their nest egg. Other than that I am semi-retired. My most recent project was building a 1934 Ford Street Rod with a flathead V-8 motor. I am also currently working on a Datsun 280ZX that I hope to at least make a good driver.

I am currently writing a book about my car experiences from when I was a kid playing on Grandpa’s Model T up through the Model T collection we recently completed and sold. I will advise the club when it is complete.
